Automobile showrooms demand glazing solutions of the highest caliber. The huge, shimmering facades of glass require the best of clarity & transparency, allowing clear visibility even in passing.       Auto showrooms also see a high frequency of customer walk-ins every day.

Hence, it is also mandatory that these showrooms ensure occupancy comfort with the least possible power consumption. The glazing solutions should ensure that the light transmitted is optimum, and does not cause a glare for the occupants inside.

Sparkling Ice is a glass with solar control properties; it cuts the heat and allows optimum amount of light to pass through. It is a toughened glass and can be used in single glazing just like a normal clear glass. It is one of the best options available when it comes to single glazing. The solar control coating is robust, weather-resistant and highly durable.

To add to the aesthetics of the showrooms, coloured glass SGG Planilaque Evolution has been used. A company renowned for truly making cars for the people, Volkswagen’s brand identity is that of a ‘People’s Car’. Hence Planilaque Extra White was chosen to panel the walls, pillars and lounges of the Volkswagen showrooms. It is a colour that reflects the brand’s personality – elegant, subtle and sophisticated. In terms of utility value, Planilaque is just right for a showroom. A lacquered glass, it has lacquer layered on one side of the glass. This makes it resistant to heat & humidity as well as durable.
